(1)"Daddy! Daddy!", my daughter yells to me. She wants to sit behind the wheel of my new car. The engine is off. It's in the driveway. What's the harm? I lift her up and she giggles. I blow a raspberry on the exposed part of her belly. She laughs more. I place my daughter down on the drivers seat. She scootches herself up to the dashboard and peers out the window. "Look at me daddy! I'm a big girl!"
(2) I think to myself this won't last forever. Her innocence and her constant love and admiration for me. Wow. Some day she'll really be behind the wheel of a car. Will she still draw me pictures at school? Like the one I have hanging in my office.
(3) Will she still want to untangle the Christmas lights with me every year? Or will she tire of our daddy daughter traditions?
(4) Will she still have that same creative mind that I love so much? Like during our family vacation to the grand canyon when she found a pile of rocks. Her mother told her not to play with them but she didn't see rocks. She saw art. She spelled out her initials. N. N. I have such a smart little girl.
(5) "Daddy I'm a big girl!" She yells again. I lift her out of the car and place her back on her feet. "Yes you are princess", I say as I notice she's about to step in a puddle in the drive way. I lift her up and over it. "But you'll always be my baby."
